Hoimann - Airfix Me109 G6 Part 2

Well after looking at the parts of this old mould Airfix messer, I remembered I had some spares from a Hobby boss easy assemble Messerschmitt kit...
Airfix wheels at the top, funny skinny disc things, the Hobby Boss ones are below and are very nice.

The Hobby Boss tropical filter at the top, and Airfix's strange tropical filter below.
Also found the Hobby Boss machine gun covers, which to me look spot on, certainly better than the Airfix 'saddle tanks'.

 
Here is the Hobby Boss tropical filter for a comparison, I've opened up the intake of it here, as I'm going to do this inflight, and I believe the intake was only closed when they were taking off or landing.
